Kentucky Legislature is in Session – What You Can Do

By | Kentucky | No Comments

“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16


With a new year comes a brand new 2023 Kentucky legislative session! The legislative session opened on January 3 and will conclude on March 30.

Now more than ever, our state legislators need our prayers for knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. We, as believers, are commanded to pray for those in authority. I truly believe that prayer moves the hand of God, and He wants to hear the cries of His people.

Pray for your state legislators.
As our leaders tackle the challenges of 2023, you can encourage them by praying daily for health, energy, endurance, supernatural refreshment, joy, and discernment.

Encourage-A-Legislator Prayer Project – Kentucky

By | Kentucky | No Comments

Encourage-A-Legislator Program

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” – I Timothy 2:1-2

The Call to Prayer

I Timothy 2:1-2 instructs us to pray for our leaders. Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) program offers our members and friends the vehicle to do this in an easy and meaningful way. It ensures consistent prayer for each legislator, and it encourages and builds bridges with conservative legislators as well as those who do not normally agree with us.


Whether a legislator is a believer, non-believer, conservative, liberal, Democrat, Republican, independent, or other, they need our prayers. This next legislative session, CWA plans to deliver those prayers.

The Goal

The goal of the EAL program is to encourage each member of the State House and Senate by praying for them on a regular basis and sending them a postcard throughout the legislative session.


The EAL program is never used to lobby and, therefore, is never confrontational. It is simply a great way to lift up those in authority and encourage them in their responsibilities.

The Commitment

We provide the name and address of the assigned legislator(s) and the postcards, and you commit to praying for your assigned legislator(s) daily, if possible, while the legislature is in session, and then mail an EAL postcard monthly until the conclusion of the three-month session.

The Kentucky Legislature

The Kentucky legislature is in session from January 3 till approximately March 30 and consists of 100 House members and 38 Senate members.

Answer the Call

Sign up today to be an encourager—it couldn’t be easier!

Sign up by contacting CWA of Kentucky by email at [email protected] and provide your name and physical mailing address. Be sure to specify how many legislators you would like to encourage. They will then enlist you as an encourager and send you a packet of postcards and instructions in early January.

Spread the Word!

Please encourage your friends and family to sign up.


Consider making this a family project by involving your children.

Pray for the Kentucky Supreme Court

“The urgent request of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.” James 5:16 (BCL)


November 8 was a great day for many Kentucky counties. Election victories across the state offer Kentucky a reason to be hopeful as we look toward the 2023 legislative session in Frankfort with a fresh body serving our Commonwealth.


Unfortunately, despite the tireless efforts of Kentucky’s pro-life movement to secure protection for the unborn, Amendment 2 was defeated, and the lives of the most vulnerable Kentuckians once again face great peril.


On Tuesday, November 15,  the Kentucky Supreme Court will hear oral arguments challenging the constitutionality of the state’s pro-life laws that protect the unborn from abortion in all cases except the life of the mother.


As pro-life Christians, we know that our hope does not rest in the decisions of a court but in Christ alone. We are instructed in Hebrews 14:16 to “approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.”


Join me today in praying for Attorney General Daniel Cameron and his team, who is representing Kentuckians and defending the Human Right Protection Act and the Heartbeat Law against abortion advocates.


Let us also pray for our Kentucky Supreme Court that they will interpret the Kentucky constitution rightly and determine that the right to an abortion does not exist in the language of the Founding Fathers of Kentucky.

Concerned Women for America of Kentucky

Applauds the SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade


Frankfort, Kentucky – The Commonwealth of Kentucky’s majority pro-life legislature and a strong support network of pro-life groups have worked hard for many years to transform hearts and minds of Kentuckians regarding the value of human life in the womb. Through solid resources and good legislation, the Commonwealth is prepared to support a culture of life that protects all.


Concerned Women for America of Kentucky State Director Jennifer Pendleton, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision:


“The decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade is a victory for the diverse communities all across the Commonwealth of Kentucky. As a conservative majority who values life, we desire to help women realize the value of their unique design and flourish in all seasons of life, including pregnancy and motherhood. Organizations around Kentucky stand ready to support, encourage, and advocate for pregnant mothers and children.


“Thank you, to our courageous Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, for putting the lives of the unborn first, taking Kentucky’s fight all the way to the Supreme Court. Thank you to our conservative majority in our General Assembly who had the foresight to legislate protections for the unborn during the previous Administration, and thank you to the many pro-life groups around our state who, with their blood, sweat, and tears, have paved the way for this moment!


“Tomorrow, we get to work, but today we celebrate life!”

Meet Jennifer Pendleton – Kentucky’s New State Director

By | Kentucky, News and Events | No Comments

I am thrilled to introduce you to Jennifer Pendleton, Concerned Women for America’s new Kentucky State Director. Jennifer is a Kentucky transplant from San Antonio, Texas. She graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Fine Arts and Graphic Design. After a decade navigating the corporate advertising world in Dallas, TX and Lexington, KY, Jennifer and her husband Charles settled on their little patch of heaven in Clark County, Kentucky where they raised two sons, and continue to prepare their daughter for the wide world.

As a homeschooling mom, Jennifer has had many jobs, interests, and involvement. She worked as Communications Director for Southland Christian Church, served as Marketing Co-Chair for St. Agatha Academy, lead mission trips to Haiti, managed a women’s fitness center, and served as pre-school ministry Volunteer Director at her church. Currently, she serves at-risk women at a faith-based first touch ministry, Natalie’s Sisters, in downtown Lexington, KY, and tutors Foundations for Classical Conversations. With a passion for apologetics, she hopes to someday become a Colson Fellow with the Colson Center for Christian Worldview.

A note from Jennifer:

“The last several years have challenged my faith and my core values as an American. The result being that my faith has grown exponentially and my pride in the American experiment has blossomed. The contradiction of emotions evoked by the hysteria of recent cultural events sent me on a prayerful quest to find a way to pair my politics and my faith. In doing so, I found CWA!

“The sound, fundamental principles and common-sense approach of education, advocacy, and prayer is just the guidance I needed to refocus for a mission to inspire people from all faith and political backgrounds with a message that we can be unified under the doctrine of Biblical Truth.

“I believe deeply in the fundamental premise for public education. As CWA State Director, I hope to inspire reform by casting a vision to parents, schools, and legislators of parents’ God-given authority and obligation to participate and guide their children in all areas of their lives, partnering with teachers and school administrators at all times, not giving authority of their children over to the state.

“This disconnect between children and parents, created by our societal dependence on the education system, is leading to a loss of traditional values and an explosive normalization of sexual obscenity, including pornography, prostitution, and sex trafficking. I hope to shed light on these despicable practices and the innocent victims by working with state legislators to reform laws, regulations, and consequences of criminal behavior.

“Prayer is my love language, so building teams of prayer warriors excites and invigorates my mission to establish an active, effective, and enthusiastic CWA of Kentucky!”

Kentucky Legislature Overrides Governor’s Veto
Fairness in Women’s Sports Act Now Law

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Kentucky Legislature overrode Gov. Andy Beshear’s veto of the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act (SB 83). This bill bans biological boys identifying as girls from participating in girls’ sports at the K-12 and college levels. Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kentucky applauds the Kentucky Legislature representing the voice of the people for showing Gov. Beshear his failure to protect female athletes from discrimination. His veto was an insult to every Kentucky girl working to excel in her sport.

“It is a momentous day in Kentucky. We are proud of our courageous Kentucky House and Senate members for standing with female athletes in the Commonwealth,” said CWA of Kentucky State Director Jennifer Pendleton. “As the mother of a female athlete, I celebrate this decision as a personal victory. This is great news for Kentucky!”

CWA’s own Young Women for America leader, Halli Gravelly, a Kentucky high school swimmer, gave powerful testimony before the legislature about why this law is needed after witnessing the impact of misguided policies that are destroying the hopes and dreams of young female athletes today. Halli had this to say about the veto override: “I am excited to hear that the Kentucky State Legislature to override the Governor’s veto today. As an athlete, I am excited and thankful for this new step towards fairness in women’s sports.” 

In March, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) filed a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education under Title IV against the University of Pennsylvania for its discrimination against women.  

CWALAC is leading the charge to save women’s sports.
